lyrics

Simply complex
Describes my life’s quest best
I don’t believe in fate
But in my faith
I must confess
When I make this date
With destiny questioning
What comes next for me
As a human being
Not an empty entity
These plans of man
Are footprints in the sand bar
Just trying to stay dry
When the tide returns
To land hard
Don’t forget the steps
That led you to your current version
Treat every moment sacred
In experience like a virgin

And you know it's true
Man is sand is desert dust
Just floating through
An hourglass and the past
That you grasp to
Is just a ghost of all the things
you were going through

I just grew
Like plants and trees
I’m branching too
Like buds and seeds
I was born to bloom
Like a cool summer breeze
Just flowing through
Birds and bees wings

It’s the roots
Of the trees
That grow deep
So we can climb
And find truth which we need
To sow our youth
A new design
For love and what it means
To share hope inclined
Through growth
Planting seasons dreams
To spring or fall
Or the both
When you share your art
You tear your heart apart
And give it out
And dare to care
In spite of doubts
That someone digs
What you’re about
Be bigger than doubt
And figure it out
Whatever my last words were
The ones you heard were
From the heart

I just grew
Like plants and trees
I’m branching too
Like buds and seeds
I was born to bloom
Like a cool summer breeze
Just flowing through
Birds and bees wings

And you know it's true
Man is sand is desert dust
Just floating through
An hourglass and the past
That you grasp to
Is just a ghost of all the things
you were going through

I just tried
To help you shed the past
But you must look inside
If all you see in house of glass
Is what you’re trying to hide
Know that happiness won’t last
If to yourself you’ve lied
Who am I
Ask yourself everyday
And get a different reply
I'm just trying to change your mind
If you want eye for an eye
Before the day that we find
The whole worlds gone blind
Who are you
Great question
Best answered through
the things you do
Like the last autumn leaf
Clings to life's big tree
See yourself holding on
Until you cease to be
Mistakes can make for a
Most prosperous harvest
Missteps build momentum
If properly harnessed
Thoughts swirl around
The ends and means
Lost in the process
We’re crop circles
in a field of dreams
And natural causes

I just grew
Like plants and trees
I’m branching too
Like buds and seeds
I was born to bloom
Like a cool summer breeze
Just flowing through
Birds and bees wings

And you know it's true
Man is sand is desert dust
Just floating through
An hourglass and the past
That you grasp to
Is just a ghost of all the things
you were going through
